That's a good song but I like "Sister Golden Hair," "Ventura Highway," and "Tin Man" equally well. Those are the top four by them, in my humble estimation.
Sister Golden Hair
Horse With No Name is the first song I learned on guitar. ^_^
Nice. Ventura Highway is the only America riff I know. Night Moves was my first guitar song. ; )
They performed on a PBS special a few years ago, sounded as terrific as ever! My favorite song of theirs is actually on an LP, it wan't a "hit" or anything, it's called "Til the Sun Comes Up Again."
Sister golden Hair.
It's a toss-up between Ventura Highway and You Can Do Magic
I first heard Horse With No Name" played on Radio Luxemburg and i picked it up on a small crystal radio set I had built myself - went out and bought it the following day.
That was in the days when we didn't have i-pods or PS3s or even desktop computers and used to build our own little transistor radios - kids today wouldn't even know what I was talking about !
You must be a Mary Hopkin fan ("Those Were the Days") :)
Yep, definitely showing our age - but I think it was more fun, getting the components, soldering them together and then the joy of actually PICKING UP A SIGNAL ! rather than paying perhaps hundreds for something made in Korea or China that's the same as everyone else has got !
Here in the UK the B-side to "A Horse With No Name"was "Sandman",which I thought was even better than the A-side.
